Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

The Creepies are coming...

Squash - 5X7 watercolor
 The laptop is not talking to the scanner right now, so this was done through the digital camera. There is more, but I haven't taken pictures of them yet. Bummer.
Have a Happy Halloween!

Filet Crochet  rose wreath - 5X6 cotton
I know, off-topic. But I've been trying to keep my hands in with the needlearts part of my activities. This was my first filet crochet in a very long time, and I hadn't ever done much. It was sort of a warm-up to try something more adventurous.

That lead to this:
Filet crochet, cotton size #20, about 15X12
This one took a while. As you can see at the bottom point, I started it according to the directions, but it DOESN'T work. So I modified the vertical stitch and continued. The changed stitch worked! This is supposed to be part of a table cover, there are more identical sections. Will  do the others?  Hmmm.
